Reasons to break rules to contain COVID-19 on Christmas in Italy 2020

According to a survey conducted in November 2020 in Italy, 17 percent of respondents were eager to break the COVID-19 rules during the Christmas Holidays. The Italian government, in fact, planned to tighten the already existing social distancing rules to contain the spread of the virus in a period of huge gatherings like the Christmas one traditionally is. Among people who were eager to break these rules, most of them would do so in order to celebrate this festivity with their dear ones. In particular, 59 percent of the respondents would break COVID-19 rules to celebrate with the closest members of their family. Another 34 percent of the respondents would do the same in order to celebrate with their extended family.
